intense political squabble over the right kinds of words and gestures appropriate to pay respects. a controversy president trump says he did not expect. >> i was very surprised to see this, to be honest with you. >> reporter: in a fox interview to air sunday, president trump defended himself and chief of staff general john kelly over the handling of a condolence call to the family of fallen soldier la david johnson. >> he was in the room when i made the call. >> reporter: saying it was not appropriate for frederica wilson, a johnson family friend, to listen in and comment on the president's words. >> he said, sir, this is not acceptable. i was so nice. >> reporter: kelly, who lost his son robert in afghanistan, mad n
wilson on thursday, accusing her of self-promoting at an fbi building dedication. >> talked about how she was instrumental in getting the funding for that building. >> reporter: wilson had not boasted about funding. she talked about getting rushed approval to name the building after fbi agents killed on duty. >> i went to the speaker, and i said, mr. speaker, i need your help. the fii needs your help. >> reporter: president trump called wilson whacky in a tweet, and the press secretary pushed back at reporters who cited kelly's false claim. >> if you want to go after general kelly, that's up to you, but i think if you want to get into a debate with a four-star marine general, i think that that's something highly inappropriate. >> reporter: sarah sanders backed off the criticism, saying in a statement, of course, everyone can be questioned.
the president's former chief strategist, steve bannon, who took what he called his civil war to the california state republican party convention late last night. he directed his fire toward former president george w. bush, after the 43rd president had, days ago, remarked about the, quote, casual cruelty in our public discourse. >> he embarrassed himself. speechwriter wrote a high speech, and it was clear he didn't understand what he was talking about, just like when he was president of the united states. >> reporter: bannonal also directed fire at john mccain, saying they are not properly and completely supporting president trump. >> kelly o'donnell for us at the white house this morning. thank you. steve kornacki is a political correspondent for nbc news and msnbc. good morning. >> morning. >> we'll get to the president's comments on the dacall in a moment.
attacking two prominent republicans. former president bush and john mccain. what is behind this? then he's vowing a season of war against the establishment republicans. i mean, what's his goal and the potential impact of this so-called war? >> what steve bannon is trying to do to the republican party, senators, members of the house, governors, every elected official in the country, he's trying to make every elected official be a donald trump style republican. he's trying to continue the war the trump administration has launched, in addition to the republican party. so much of what he said last night would have been absolutely unthinkable in major politics a year or two years ago. think about that. he went after george w. bush. he went after john mccain. in the campaign, donald trump said george w bush lied us into iraq and john mccain wasn't a war hero. so many of these fights that are popping up right now are fighting that, in some way, we went through during the campaign. what donald trump established in the campaign, whatever anybody
established during the campaign is it is possible to say those things and get elected president. bannon is saying, we can do more than president, we can change the republican party. >> let's go back to the controversy over the condolence calls to the family of fallen soldiers inhis country, a story that's dominated the headlines this week. president trump defending his alaskas in the tv interview that will air on sunday. congresswoman wilson playing the race card late yesterday, saying the white house is full of white supremacists. what's really happening here? i mean, is this an issue that's been politicized by both sides? >> well, remember, i said it feels like there are things that would never have been at issue in politics before the last year or two. this is another one. the death of an american hero, the death of a soldier, the president's response to this. i can't remember a time when something like this has been at issue in partisan politics, but i would say this is the trumpification of politics. he succeed
own agenda, in getting the other side to respond, too, and escalate its own rhetoric. you have a situation where you have the congresswoman escalating what she said. white supremacists in the white house you mentioned. you have john kelly now involved. it escalated into this bigger, cultural brouhaha, which seems to be his approach to everything. >> steve kornacki, thank you. >> sure. many questions remain about what precisely happened on the deadly day in niger when four american soldiers were ambushed and killed. now, the fbi is getting involved in the investigation. nbc's pentagon correspondent hans nichols is following this part of the story. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, craig. as we learn more about this situation, officials at the pentagon caution that even investigators don't have all the facts. after being briefed by defense secretary jim mattis about the
is bracing if for a new front in the fight against isis. >> we don't want the next 9/1 1 to come from niger. >> reporter: warning americans about the changing battlefield. >> the war is headed to africa. it is beginning to mormorph. as we suppress the enemy, they'll move. >> you can always improve on communication. that's exactly what we'll do. >> reporter: public explanations coming as the internal investigation gathers steam. the fbi lending forensic support, looking into how a team of well-trained special forces was ambushed, the pentagon says, by a group of 50 isis-linked fighters. military officials say special forces who were meeting with the brial elders before attack may have been delayed intentionally, allowing isis to attack. a senior aide tells nbc news that the ambush that killed
part, from a, quote, massive intelligence failure. but the pentagon warns such conclusions are premature. there are urgent questions about why the team was exposed without drone support directly overhead. earlier this year, the u.s. commander for africa warned only 20% to 30% of his intelligence requirements were satisfied. >> it is very dangerous when you carry out any mission and you don't have extended eyes and ears around yourself or the human intelligence to determine when you've met a threat. >> reporter: sergeant johnson was mourned by his family. this morning, the "new york times" is reporting different accounts from the american soldiers and the nigerian soldiers. they're telling investigators different things on whether or not they gave chase to islamic extremi extremis. tryt that up. secretary mattis on the hill yesterday would
president trump, rather, authorized this mission. talking to pentagon officials though, it is clear, this kind of mission would not require presidential authorization. craig? >> hans nichols for us in d.c., thank you. also this morning, a show of force from the u.s. against north korea. "uss ronald reagan" stationed at a port in south korea as a part of a joint exercise with the country. it comes a few days after north korea's latest threatening comments toward the u.s. keir simmons made it inside north korea for a rare look inside that country. good morning. >> reporter: hey, good morning, guys. this weekend, the rhetoric from the capital of north korea, pyongyang, where i am, continues. they're complaining of the reckless moves by president trump, and warning if there is an attempt to topple the leadership of north korea, it will lead to a nuclear disaster. we came here to tryo
koreans. while this is a country that frowns upon dissent, what we have found from most north koreans is they say while they want peace, they are ready for war, even a nuclear war with network. in terms of the questions of whether north korea might threaten the winter olympics, which are due to take place in south korea next year, we have asked them again and again whether the skaters who qualified for the games will actually compete. so far, there appears to be no decision on that. perhaps that will be an indication. of course, if north koreans were taking part in the games, it would seem less likely that a government here in pyongyang would threaten those very games. but we'll see. craig and sheinelle, back to you. >> thank you. meanwhile, back at home, a developing story down south, where police in florida are trying to figure out if a serial killer on the loos
tampa in the past two weeks. police are working around the clock to catch their killer, or killers. kerry sanders has more. >> reporter: this morning, police asking for help in finding this person. a possible serial killer captured on surveillance camera, prowling the city streets. late this week, what could be victim number three. anthony, a 20-year-old with autism, shot dead on the street after he'd accidentally taken the wrong bus home from work. officers blanketing the area heard the shot, but the suspected gunman eluded capture. >> we still have no leads. we have no motive. >> reporter: his body was discovered near the home of the first victim. 22-year-old benjamin mitchell, who was shot and killed 11 days ago. less than 300 yards away. 32-year-old monica hoff's body was found in a vacant lot two days later. police do not believe the victims are lke

the severity of the charges and the willingness of women now to come forward, serious issues for him. >> we talked about the potential criminal charges. civil charges here, potential civil suits, the likelihood of that at this point? >> they're easier to bring. the burden of proof is lower. something to look for is the possibility the employees may decide to forego their non-disclosure agreements and talk about what happens inside the company. that would allow for other civil claims. >> what happens next, if your opinion, from the legal perfe perspecti perspe t'? wor m not be at the end of the number of women who come forward, so you could expect to hear more claims. watch what happens at the company and harvey weinstein has a lot of lawyering up to do. >> thank you for the insight. >> thank you. dylan has another check of the weather. dylan? >> hey, guys. we do have a chance of stronger storms today ahead of this cold front that's going to move through the southern plains and into parts of the midwest. they'll fire up later this

va. if you have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis,... ...isn't it time to let the real you shine through? maybe it's time for otezla (apremilast). otezla is not an injection or a cream. it's a pill that treats plaque psoriasis differently. with otezla, 75% clearer skin is achievable after just 4 months,... ...with reduced redness,... ...thickness, and scaliness of plaques. and the otezla prescribing information has... ...no requirement for routine lab monitoring. don't use if you're allergic to otezla. otezla may cause severe diarrhea, nausea, or vomiting. tell your doctor if these occur. otezla is associated with an increased... ...risk of depression. tell your doctor if you have... ...a history of depression... ...or suicidal thoughts,... ...or if these feelings develop. some people taking otezla... ...reported weight loss. your doctor should monitor your weight and may stop treatment. other side effects include upper... ...respiratory tract infection and headache. tell your doctor about all the medicines you take... ...and if you're pregnant or planning to be. ask your dermatologist about otezla today.
otezla. show more of you. your parents have been ittalking about you for years.. they're all about me saving for a house, or starting a college fund for my son. actually, i want to know what you're thinking. knowing that the most important goals are yours. it's how edward jones makes sense of investing. one hero was on a mission to save snack time. watch babybel in the great snack rescue. you want a piece of me? good, i'm delicious. creamy, delicious, 100% real cheese. mini babybel. snack a little bigger. dates, cashews, chocolate chips and sea salt. i don't know how they made four simple ingredients taste like cookie dough. but i am not complaining.
food made from food. i was wondering if an electric toothbrusthan a manual.s better and my hygienist says it does but they're not all the same. who knew? i had no idea. so she said, look for one that's shaped like a dental tool with a round brush head. go pro with oral-b. oral-b's rounded brush head surrounds each tooth to gently remove more plaque. and unlike sonicare, oral-b is the only electric toothbrush brand accepted by the american dental association for its effectiveness and safety. my mouth feels so clean. i'll only use an oral-b. oral-b. brush like a pro. a lot of folks outside today. we'll get out there in a bit. back on a saturday morning after what's been a record week on wall street. on friday, the dow, s&p 500 and the nasdaq all closed at record highs, fueled by hopes of tax reform. >> that has a lot of folks
market now, or am i too late to the party? our friend stephanie ruhle, former investment banker, is here to break it all down. good to see you. >> morning. i also like parties. i mike marklike markets a parti >> first of all, what is driving this rally? >> the rally didn't start when president trump won and, granted, we've seen a real trump bump, the promise of deregulation and tax reform, but this rally has been going on since 2009. it's largely in part to low interest rates. low interest rates around the world. when interest rates are low, companies can borrow, they're flexible, they can hire. so you're seeing this steady climb over time. that's been a really big positive. >> it is interesting to note, about half of americans don't have any investments. let's say someone is at home, they have $1,000 to invest. that's it. what would you say they should do? are there easy ways to get started? >> it is important to note. when you say the economy is doing great, look at the stock market, half
can't time the market, you can't choose the bottoms or the highs. even professional investors can't. if you want to get in, start easy. blue chips, for example. if you take the dow jones industrial average, you have 30 big stocks out there. why are they called blue chips? based on their reputation, their history, their past profitability. now, past profitability does not guarantee future returns, but you know it is a safer bet. they've done well in the past. that's the way to dip your toe in if you want to buy an individual stock. if you want to go broader than that, a safer bet, mutual funds. it is a portfolio. a bunch of different names, kind of tipping your toe in. then you have a professional investor running that mutual fund and you have to pay a fee. you have to make sure that's not some huge fee that's going to eat up your profit. then your third option would be an index. in that, you're basically making an entire bet on the economy. you're buying the s&p. you're buying the dow
bet the market is going to go up. now, remember, any investment you could absolutely lose. you cannot walk in saying, i know i'm going to do well. you need patience. if you lose money and you do sell, and sell before the year is out, and you sell below where you bought the stock, you get to write that off. >> at this point, a lot of folks have suggested that perhaps a number of these stocks are ov overpriced. of course, i think this was the week that marked the 30th anniversary of the '87 crash. are we headed, perhaps, for another course correction? >> there could be a correction. as it relates to the crash that we saw all those years ago, that is what you call a black swan. that is a one off event. even since then, now there are circuit breakers in the market. so if there is an extreme drop, the regulators turn the machines off and say, let's slow down. even when that crash happened, or
patience heals all wounds. by the end of the year, things actually went up in both of those cases. but if you want to know if we'll have a correction now, hard to tell. what you want to do is look at the overall market and say, there are ten sectors. of the ten sectors, what has out performed the market? things like health care have. things like hot, hot areas. if you say that's out performed the market, if i chase it, that could be a mistake for me. why don't you look for things that under performed the market? if you look at the bottom sectors, really study them. if there is a wave and they catch up, you might want to ride those. >> thank you. where were you in my econ class? college? that was good. you can watch her on msnbc at 9:00 a.m. eastern. dylan, what's next? >> the recruit for showing zero interest in doing a good job. why is the country's
